The stitching for my Sled of Month project is done and it is so cute! This is from the Lizzie*Kate Snippet called Sled Dudes. I personally think this sweetie looks more like a dog than a polar bear, either way …. so cute!
I was surprised while I was stitching this that the substitution from overdyes to DMC were different than the other Snippet sled charts. I suppose it goes to the varied colors from the overdyes and it is safe to say that from one dyelot to the next they sometimes look completely different. In all fairness that also happens with DMC but is more subtle, I do prefer DMC.
I used the recommended substitutions and stitched with DMC using 3 strands on 14 count perforated paper. The stitch count for this series is 17×30.
The AT-AT from Lego is looking good with the leg sections attached and almost complete. This is truly a project that is for display only, the connectors on the legs are minimal and a bit unstable. But…. it looks fabulous!!
There are others cross stitch projects that got attention this past week but I’m waiting to post pictures until they are a little further along.
The resource center purge continues with fabric…. lots and lots of cotton for quilting. If you are an ebay person take a look at my stuff by searching my ebay id JBF.
Happy Memorial Day! Stay safe.
